    If we must die, let it not be like hogs
    Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
    While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,
    Making their mock at our accursèd lot.
    If we must die, O let us nobly die,
    So that our precious blood may not be shed
    In vain; then even the monsters we defy
    Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!
    O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe!
    Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,
    And for their thousand blows deal one death-blow!
    What though before us lies the open grave?
    Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack,
    Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!
    Claude McKay

    A Red Flower

    Your lips are like a southern lily red,
    Wet with the soft rain-kisses of the night,
    In which the brown bee buries deep its head,
    When still the dawn's a silver sea of light.

    Your lips betray the secret of your soul,
    The dark delicious essence that is you,
    A mystery of life, the flaming goal
    I seek through mazy pathways strange and new.


    Your lips are the red symbol of a dream,
    What visions of warm lilies they impart,
    That line the green bank of a fair blue stream,
    With butterflies and bees close to each heart!

    Brown bees that murmur sounds of music rare,
    That softly fall upon the langourous breeze,
    Wafting them gently on the quiet air
    Among untended avenues of trees.


    O were I hovering, a bee, to probe
    Deep down within your scented heart, fair flower,
    Enfolded by your soft vermilion robe,
    Amorous of sweets, for but one perfect hour!

    The City's Love

    For one brief golden moment rare like wine,
    The gracious city swept across the line;
    Oblivious of the color of my skin,
    Forgetting that I was an alien guest,
    She bent to me, my hostile heart to win,
    Caught me in passion to her pillowy breast;
    The great, proud city, seized with a strange love,
    Bowed down for one flame hour my pride to prove.

    Absence

    by Claude McKay
    Your words dropped into my heart like pebbles into a pool,

    Rippling around my breast and leaving it melting cool.

    Your kisses fell sharp on my flesh like dawn-dews from the limb,
    Of a fruit-filled lemon tree when the day is young and dim.

    But a silence vasty-deep, oh deeper than all these ties
    Now, through the menacing miles, brooding between us lies.

    And more than the songs I sing, I await your written word,
    To stir my fluent blood as never your presence stirred.

    I Know My Soul by Claude McKay
    _________________________

    I plucked my soul out of its secret place,
    And held it to the mirror of my eye,
    To see it like a star against the sky,
    A twitching body quivering in space,
    A spark of passion shining on my face.
    And I explored it to determine why
    This awful key to my infinity
    Conspires to rob me of sweet joy and grace.
    And if the sign may not be fully read,
    If I can comprehend but not control,
    I need not gloom my days with futile dread,
    Because I see a part and not the whole.
    Contemplating the strange, I'm comforted
    By this narcotic thought: I know my soul.

    Birds of Prey

    Their shadow dims the sunshine of our day,
    As they go lumbering across the sky,
    Squawking in joy of feeling safe on high,
    Beating their heavy wings of owlish gray.
    They scare the singing birds of earth away
    As, greed-impelled, they circle threateningly,
    Watching the toilers with malignant eye,
    From their exclusive haven--birds of prey.
    They swoop down for the spoil in certain might,
    And fasten in our bleeding flesh their claws.
    They beat us to surrender weak with fright,
    And tugging and tearing without let or pause,
    They flap their hideous wings in grim delight,
    And stuff our gory hearts into their maws.

    Claude McKay

    At night the wide and level stretch of wold,
    Which at high noon had basked in quiet gold, 78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Far as the eye could see was ghostly white;
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Dark was the night save for the snow's weird light.


    I drew the shades far down, crept into bed;
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Hearing the cold wind moaning overhead
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014Through the sad pines, my soul, catching its pain, 78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Went sorrowing with it across the plain.
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    At dawn, behold! the pall of night was gone,
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014Save where a few shrubs melancholy, lone, 78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Detained a fragile shadow. Golden-lipped
    The laughing grasses heaven's sweet wine sipped.
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    The sun rose smiling o'er the river's breast,
    78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014And my soul, by his happy spirit blest, 78967ilzkxxjski - Competition Of English Poetry June 2014
    Soared like a bird to greet him in the sky,
    And drew out of his heart Eternity.

    assalaam-o-alaikum

    thank you for announcing this competition and giving us chance to read the beutiful words written by this Jamaican-American writer and poet, I simple loved his poetry and wisdom.

    after carefully reading his poetry collection, I chose the following poem as my choice for this competition.... not to win but to allow you to read this beuatiful collection of words, wisdom and emotions.

    Your door is shut against my tightened face,
    And I am sharp as steel with
    discontent;
    But I possess the courage and the grace
    To bear my anger
    proudly and unbent.
    The pavement slabs burn loose beneath my feet,
    A
    chafing savage, down the decent street;
    And passion rends my vitals as I
    pass,
    Where boldly shines your shuttered door of glass.
    Oh, I must search
    for wisdom every hour,
    Deep in my wrathful bosom sore and raw,
    And find in
    it the superhuman power
    To hold me to the letter of your law!
    Oh, I must
    keep my heart inviolate
    Against the potent poison of your hate.
